Have you heard of the band Nicnos? If the answer is no, then I have an amazing surprise for you!
We saw that Nicnos was playing the water stage at the Oklahoma City Downtown Arts Festival, and that sealed it for us. To the arts festival we went!
Nicnos is not the average rock band you would expect; however, we already knew this. We had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing the band at Rocklahoma last year.
Nicnos is a high energy, blues driven, rock band based out of Oklahoma City but when you see Blake Parks walk on stage with his electric fiddle you may ask yourself, wait, is this a country band? Well, they definitely are not.
From the moment the always energetic, and always comical singer/guitarist Josh Cox starts speaking, you know you are in for a treat and you’re definitely in the right place.
Nicnos is all ages entertainment. They had the little kids dancing and the older folks singing along with their renditions from classic bands like Led Zeppelin, and Stevie Wonder. Don’t forget the electric fiddle and their take on Charlie Daniels “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” had everyone going crazy!
I really enjoyed watching how much fun bassist Jared Gaiser was having. It was evident with the perpetual smile on his face as he danced all over the stage.
I was also very impressed with the talent that guitarist Nick Sigman has when it comes to playing spot on blues. Drummer Jerred Bauer was on point driving some of the best rhythms I’ve seen in their original songs “You don’t Own me” and “Riverbed”.
Nicnos is definitely a one of a kind band and I mean that in a very positive term. They are well on their way to greatness. Their dedication to their music is evident and we will hear much more from Nicnos in the future. They are on the bill to play Rocklahoma as well as a show with Hinder in the very near future.
